You think the lat pulldown is a little superfluous? You might want to stick to bw chins for warmups, since you can get plenty of reps on those... Just my opinion, tho. Looks like it's working well for you. Legs might be a weak point... you like squatting and deadlifting on the same day? You might be better served switching to stiff-legged deadlifts instead of conventional...

Anyway, way to start another journal. Keep this one going, bud. :)

ya, since im gettin up there in the weighted chin ups, im thinkin monday ill drop the pulldowns and go just do the chins, my legs suck b/c they are my LEAST fav part to work do to my bad knees, bad form, and lack of enthusiasm, i will be working on that though, the deadlifts are a bit much but like them better than squats..

Shitty day at the gym today, most likely due to my HORRIFIC eating habbits last week. Pissed me off, although I am still seeing some extra size happenin, which is great. Also started doing grip training today.. My last set of DB Rows, my form was a little extra loose, not as controlled as I would have liked, but its partially due to my lack of grip strength, even with straps I have trouble holding the 120lb DB's.. Oh well, something to be worked on..

I decided Im not going to do the Extensions or Curls, the deadlifts and squats are MORE than enough at the moment. Other than my desire to crawl up into a ball and die, I'd say it was a good day, I did the extra wide stance sumo deads and I loved 'em, felt very strong too, I think Im getting the hang of the deadlift thing. The squats were eh, so so, my form is starting to get better with the lighter weight, but i feel like a biatch b/c the weight is much like a pansy's.. I should be squatting a lot more than I Bench press, lol but its the other way around now.. I didnt throw up today either, which is arguably a good thing..TWO thumbs up for today :)

Excellent day, felt strong in all lifts, accomplished way more than last week, I attribute that to my eating habbits so far this week. Been eating pretty religously, Im getting my fockin appetite back, YES!@! The thought of food isnt making me wanna puke anymore.
After my workout today I was nowhere NEAR death, as opposed to last week and the week before, I also attribute this the food thing.. Moral of the story... EAT EAT EAT EAT EAT EAT!!!!!:D :cool:

Manipul8r

not really, i just added the incline DB presses.. you know, I noticed my BEST gains in a long time, last week when I was off of school and working full time.. During that week, I had pretty much an EXACT schedule, I would go to bed and wake up the same time everyday, my eating as pretty much routine as well.. I think that played a huge part in my slump recovery :)
